The Black Hole (1979) For five years the crew of the PALOMINO has ranged through deep space, searching for evidence of alien life--with no result. Then, their mission almost at an end, they discover a giant collapsar--the largest black hole ever encountered--and, drifting perilously near it, is the long-lost legendary starship CyGNUS...Incredibly, the ship is not a lifeless hulk. Its commander--the genius who designed the CyGNUS and planned its epic voyage--still survives, served by a horde of mechanical slaves. But Commander Hans Reinhardt has no desire to be rescued. He has a rendezvous with the incredibly hellish forces of the collapsar--and he plans to take the PALOMINO'S crew along on his doomed adventure.

More Movie Taglines:
  • A journey that begins where everything ends!
  • You can't escape the most powerful force in the universe.
Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Hans Reinhardt: Something caused all this. But what caused... that cause?
  • Dr. Hans Reinhardt: The word "impossible," Mr. Booth, is only found in the dictionary of fools.
  • Lieutenant Charles Pizer: We'd be better off without you and Maximilian trying to knock heads. V.I.N.CENT: I can handle that thing. Lieutenant Charles Pizer: Well, far be it from you to admit there isn't anything you can't handle. V.I.N.CENT: There are three basic types, Mr. Pizer: the Wills, the Won'ts, and the Can'ts. The Wills accomplish everything, the Won'ts oppose everything, and the Can'ts won't try anything. Dan Holland: Well, do us all a favor, V.I.N.CENT, and try to be a Can't, especially where that monster is concerned. We need you, not another corkscrew.
  • V.I.N.CENT: To quote Cicero: rashness is the characteristic of youth, prudence that of mellowed age, and discretion the better part of valor.
  • Lieutenant Charles Pizer: Vincent, were you programmed to bug me? V.I.N.CENT: No, sir, to educate you.
Movie Trivia:
  • Disney's first PG-rated movie.
  • To film the special effects, Disney originally wanted to rent the Dykstraflex camera system (the first computer-controlled camera) from Industrial Light & Magic. However, the price and rental terms were unacceptable so Disney went to its acclaimed engineering division to come up with its own version. What resulted was Disney's A.C.E.S. (Automated Camera Effects System), which was radically superior to the Dykstraflex system; the Mattescan system, which enabled the camera to move on a matte painting (that was previously impossible); and a computer-controlled modeling stand. At the time, this put Disney technologically ahead of ILM.
  • Dr. Reinhardt's ship is called the "U.S.S. Cygnus." The first black hole was discovered in the constellation Cygnus.
  • Spaceship USS Cygnus was originally called Centaurus.
  • The film contains over 550 visual effects shots, including over 150 matte paintings.
